Default Re: Hack a Mac

the Mac fell first in the PWN2OWN contest last year as well.

rather, Safari fell first.

There are bugs, you'd have to be stupid to believe that macs can't be hacked.
macs do break, justs google for mac support forums to find out how much they break.

also, he didn't hack the box in 10 seconds, he'd figured out an exploit and sat on it for a year. and that's the trouble with the contest. it's not an indication of how quickly the boxes fell, it's an indication of how much work was put in before hand...

I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.

Yeah, thats what I wouldve thought.
Doesnt finding an exploit, then doing some scripting with some trial and error just to be able to do this?
